    UK Pub history research and London historical street directory

    Search the historical London street directory, and London pub history site including early street addresses in London through the Victorian pub history of London. This search engine is broken, try address searches in the main google search to get better results. OR visit the London pub history directory index pages to which I am rapidly adding links

    East London, Essex, & the City of London.

    This site is about the History of East London & Essex , which share many links. Much of the early history of Essex is now entwined into that of the East of London - and some areas are still in Essex, but feel more a part of London.

    The Watkins Commercial & General London Directory Map (1852)

    Thanks go to http://www.victorianlondon.org for this excellent resource.

    Here is the original Watkins map, in low resolution, and below are thumbnails to allow closer examination.

    Here is the map segmented as above, using thumbnails of each section.

    I use jpeg format files as they are generally smaller than gif, I use the free software from MWSnap to do this, very easily. It is brilliant software, thank you.

    These images are about 225KB each.

    To create this layout, create a table and add thumbnails; this is done by adding each image temporarily to a web page, in turn - and then selecting auto format to thumbnail for each picture. Once created, copy the thumbnail into the relevant section of the table, and delete the temporary file.

    Thanks again, go to http://www.victorianlondon.org for this excellent resource.
